linksGood Morning. I miss football already, but luckily there are a few more games today. While it looks like the NFL is taking a hiatus, there are two college football games: Utah State vs. Tennessee at 7 and SMU vs. Baylor at 7:30.. If you’re more of a basketball person, Team USA will also continue its FIBA World Cup efforts tonight at 3:30.

 

–          There was a lot of football yesterday, so its understanding if you couldn’t keep up with the SEC. Here is a SEC Roundup to get you up-to-dateon what happened yesterday in the conference. (*spoiler alert* — Florida surprised everyone by staying undefeated at 0-0 after its game was cancelled)

–         Sports Illustrated staff members have way to much time on their hands, but I appreciate it. SI put together a gif compilation of highlights from week one of college football. It’s pretty long, but it will at least give you something to do until football tonight.

–          The No. 19 University of Kentucky volleyball team started its season strong this weekend. The team won the Bluegrass Battle after finishing the weekend 3-0 after wins over Wichita State, Butler and Virginia Tech. The Cats only dropped one set against Virginia Tech and went 9-1 on the weekend.

–          The World Cup is back. No not that one. The basketball one. Team USA (not surprisingly) rolled over Finland 114-55. Klay Thompson and Anthony Davis led team USA.

–          John Calipari told CBSSports.com Anthony Davis will be the NBA’s best player in less than 5 years. Can we really disagree with him though?

–          Kevin Durant really knows how to play the game. Nike counter offered Under Armour’s offer of between $265 millon to $285 to get him to sign with them. Who needs to even play basketball when you have shoe deals like that?

    A good win for the Cats yesterday and now a week to work out any kinks and get ready for the Bobcats of Ohio. The Bobs played Kent St. yesterday and won 17 to 14 on a last second field goal. A balanced offense that didn’t seem explosive but efficient. This will be a good test for the Cats against a much tougher opponent and getting ready for the SEC. I really hope to see a better pass rush next week and see if Bud and Z can start doing some damage. Towles will only get better from week to week as this explosive UK offense looks to put points on the board. Love that Braylon Heard and hope his ankle will be good for next week. These running backs, all of them, look so good and not a weak link anywhere there. Should be a fun year to watch these Wildcats. GO BIG BLUE!!

      Changed your mind since yesterday?

      You’re a braying jackass.

    2. 2mites

      STFU you tard troll!

    3. Hunter Pence

      2mites thinks Game of Thrones is just ‘OK’

    4. 2mites

      UTM got well over 200 yds. rushing. Not well played on defense despite the turnovers.

      Poor quarterback pressure, pushed around by a small offensive line and the great defensive ends did squat today. Where is Bud and Z ? AWOL IT SEEMS!

      Well the Cats got another game to improve on the shortcomings of this one before SEC play. Lets hope it is enough to take the Gators down.

      A feel good win over a really overmatched team. Cats should have won by 60 points but the defense needs work badly. Offense looks good but the O line could have been better..

      Totally. We hung 50+ on a team that is picked to finished 5th in OVC. If that doesn’t scream bowl bound then I don’t know what does.

      The tard troll speaks with forked tounge!

    6. UKAlum

      Yep. Excuse me I think we should wait to play an SEC team before I crown is.

      If caution makes me a troll than I guess I’m a troll.

      Also using the word tard, even as a play on words, is pretty offensive to us who know and have family members who struggle with mental disabilities.

    I realize we played an inferior opponent yesterday, but I saw alot of potential. Definitely think we can beat some people were not supposed to and maybe even make a bowl game.

    1. UKAlum

      Totally. We hung 50+ on a team that is picked to finished 5th in OVC. If that doesn’t scream bowl bound then I don’t know what does.

      Let’s wait till we play a real team before we start making predictions.

    2. 2mites

      The tard troll shows his a$$ yet again!

    3. 2mites

      This guy is certainly no UK alum. All he wants to do is punk anyones post and act like he is a BB guy when he really is a Tard troll.

    4. UKAlum

      You crack me up 2Mites. Lord forbid someone disagree with your rambling or reserve judgement till we play an SEC team.

      Would you like to see a copy of my UK diploma? I dare say you don’t have one from a actual college more or less UK.

    Good morning post, Courtney. But isn’t the FIBA USA game at 3:30 on ESPN?

    1. Ridge Runner

      Actually, I am the worlds worst in getting “times” down. I have to write down everything and even then I manage to get something wrong.

  4. CATZ

    The basketball game is in Spain, not Turkey. They play Turkey next.

  5. Chicago Chris

    Weird thing about that graphic – is it to be a keyboard or Scrabble tiles?

  6. tuxedo park

    Durant only got 285 bucks out of nike? He better fire his agent, that’s barely two pairs of shoes!

  7. 2mites

    UKalum is a joke as well as even being one. A total tard troll with likely a photo shopped diploma to prove his pathetic life is a fake. He cannot stand being called out so expect more BS from his a$$. Why don’t you change the water in the tires on top of your trailer.

    1. Glad I'm Not a Hick

      “Why don’t you change the water in the tires on top of your trailer.”

      WTF does that even MEAN?!?!

    2. 2mites Mom

      It seems 2Mites is the troll. Trashing the defense yesterday and praising our team today. You can check what he said since he copy pasted it to every post yesterday.

    3. Patches

      You guys never seen a trailer with tires on the roof? Put there to keep the roof on in wind storms. I assume filled either with water or something heavy. Seems to be a lot of trolls on here and can only assume the most critical ones are the trolls, the ones who call names and slander others.

    4. UKAlum

      I’ve never examined a trailer up close. Never really lived in an area where people used them as homes.
